Running rockford 1/0 gage wire on passenger side

I don't know if a lot of you already know this, but I just discovered this today with my buddy showing me this little trick..

After you drop the wire pull the carpet back and you'll see the factory wires..

Here is a pic of the passenger side rear..

Now running up to the trunk..

Ran out of matt..trunk is covered all the way up to this point..

Yep seen it before, nice pics. Honestly, and this is just me, that heavy gauge of wire I usually run on the outside of the car, for various reasons. Looks nice though the way you routed it for sure.

I ran mine that way long ago, thru the sweet spot below the heater that people recommended.
just be carefull of sharp edges going thru the rear seat/trunk opening, I think I put mine thru closer to the rear wheel well.
and fuse it up by the battery.

I just like to have very heavy current capable/carrying wiring outside of the passenger area. The way you have yours is nice, I have seen some really shady installs in the past though. Chafing would be my highest concern, but it looks like you did it right

Thanks! Did this last night!


Much cleaner and more well hidden than driver side. Plus you save about 6 feet of wasted cable
